GETTING WORDY WITH IT

Well, being a writer, I love words. Word games are a favorite way to work with words. One of the first word games I learned to play was Anagrams. You would draw from a pile of letter tiles, and try to make as many words from them as you could. You’d take turns with other players, drawing tiles until all the tiles were used. The person with the most formed words, won the game.

From that, I went on to crossword puzzles, and skeleton puzzles. Next up, I think, was word search games, then Scrabble and Boggle. Other games that make use of words, are Scattergories, Scrutinize, and the old favorites…Password, and Mad Libs. There are a lot of pencil puzzle books too, with all kinds of fun games to do inside.

Television game shows make use of words for the contestants to play the game. These are fun to watch and play along to at home. Some of these include, Jeopardy, $100,000 Pyramid, and Wheel of Fortune.

I still like to play all of these games. So, to someone who likes word games, there are plenty to choose from.

Have fun being ‘wordy’!

Clueless Definitions

~

Here’s a fun thing to do:

Find some words in the dictionary that you really don’t know the definition of (don’t look at the definition at first).  Then, by the way it is spelled, or how it sounds to you, make up a funny sentence using the word. Lastly, read the actual definition. It’s funny to see if you were anywhere close to getting it right. 🙂

Here’s some starting with letter C that I found.

***

Clueless Definition = camerlengo – Instructions in how to operate a camera, written in camera lingo terms, so they are easily understood.

Sentence = In order to understand her new camera’s functions, she had to refer to the camerlengo that was included in the package.

Real Definition = A cardinal who heads the Apostolic Camera.

Clueless Definition = concatenate/concatenation – A newly formed country, ruled by cats.

Sentence = Due to the prevalence of cats on the internet, by special decree, we hereby dub all cats citizens of this new country, to be named Concatenation.

Real Definition = To link together in a series or chain; linked together.

***

Clueless Definition = camion – To wear camouflage; the opposite of cami-off.

Sentence = During basic training, all troops must learn about camouflage uniforms, beginning with when to put their camion, and when to take it off.

Real Definition = A motor truck, or bus.

BREAKING ALL SOULS – (FIRST WORDS)

BREAKING ALL SOULS – (FIRST WORDS)

IMG_3130 IMG_3131

I thought I’d try something a little different. I’ve seen similar, but haven’t tried doing it before. What I did, was take a bunch of books that I have stacked up, take a photo, and try to make some kind of poem out of the first word or two from the titles of them. This is what I came up with. 🙂 It was pretty interesting, and fun to do. I’ll probably try it again sometime. (oh, looks like I missed using a couple of the books title words…hmm, for fun see if you can guess the ones I missed?)

***

BREAKING ALL SOULS

The original haunted American desert has gone wild

Breaking all souls into ashes, where

I am a stranger, a sleeping holy ghost

You don’t hold the reckless midnight storm, the biting lover, the darker shades…

I’ll kiss the memory

STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY – SOCS – FOOD

Today we are to write about food, on the SOCS weekly blog fun!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 27/16

untitled

Good afternoon, y’all. Today for Stream of Consciousness Saturday, we are to talk about food. Ok, I like food 🙂 Mostly sweet things. I get bored with everything else, but you have to eat something, anyway. It doesn’t matter to me what it is, unless it is something I find gross. Like those TV food shows (you probably know the ones) that go all over the world, eating nasty stuff. Well, to me it is. I don’t even like watching them.

And, what about food fights? You see that sometimes on TV. Does anyone really throw food at each other? Sure doesn’t sound fun to me. Another thing I’d say no to are those food eating contests, where people compete for prizes, I think, by stuffing themselves with more and more food. That can’t be good for you.

Some phrases we hear all the time are… Food for thought (I can sort of understand this one)… Food fit for a King (so, is no food fit for a Queen?)… and then, there are grocery stores with Food in the name, such as… Food King (still no Queen), Food Emporium (really?)… Food basket (ok, makes sense)…

Now that I’ve typed Food so many times, the word sounds weird…say it with me… Food, food, food, fooooooddd… hahaha …it makes your lips pucker up! hahaha 😉

So, I have my afternoon coffee. Is that a food, or just a beverage? There are liquid foods, solid foods, crunchy, slimy, sweet, sour, yummy and yucky… want me to go on listing stuff? I imagine you don’t…so, I think I’m done for now.

What’s for lunch/ dinner/supper/breakfast/snacks?
